You mean a dummy collection just like for AB AC... at db.etree.org? Hm, we could just make one that we're sure could sort first, maybe like "....A Band to Select"? (note extra . to come first before Trail of Dead, if that's an issue.)

But might want to see how bad a problem it is before doing something like this. We might not need it, since the Trail name lights up as *really* obvious in the curation queue anyway on its own, since it is so long. :)

Sort of, but without the band name even being associated with a collection. It's possible to have a picklist entry that doesn't "go" anywhere (that's what I use for picklists on the search engine in my web site, to avoid spurious searches) - stick that at the top, throw in a "please choose a band" alert if the button is pushed with that "band" selected, and presto, no entries misfiled as "...And You Will Know, etc.". :)

I think we'd risk blackholing some filesets that way- they still may go in with the spurious id, not being associated with any valid collection.
